welcome to my journal

Hi friend! My name is Jessica, I am a newborn and family photographer based in Washington Dc. I find it an absolute honor to photograph you with your little ones. I adore baby toes and that unforgettable newborn smell. 

Visiting Jackson Hole has been on my bucket list for the past ten years. I don’t enjoy terribly cold weather and I love being around lots of people (one reason I adore living in the city). My childhood friend-Ariel-moved here 15 years ago after we trekked across the US on a roadtrip together. I remember […]

A Visit to Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Baby Daniel was simply the sweetest. He was so alert during his at-home session. His mother did an amazing job on styling his nursery. It was bright and so welcoming-the perfect place to bring a newborn home.

A Baby Boy Newborn Session | Rockville MD Newborn Photographer

Each year I forget how beautiful Spring is in DC. The light is so bright and warm it creates amazing images. I met this sweet family at Lower Senate Park and then we walked over to the Library of Congress to get a few photos under the blossoming trees.

A Cherry Blossom Session in DC | Washington, DC Family Photographer

This sweet baby boy was long awaited. The IVF journey is incredibly hard and takes immense strength but the wonderful gift on the other side is worth the wait. Little Hadrian was so peaceful during his at-home newborn session. He slept almost the entire time and was just all around perfection.

When you have excited new parents, two dogs and an adorable baby boy in one session, you know it’s going to be fun! Little Everett was so sweet.
